Using Graphic Design Inspiration and Avoiding Plagiarism

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

One of the most difficult things to do is gain inspiration without copying or stealing someone else’s ideas. Because we are surrounded by designs and art in everyday lives, trying to find that fine line between inspiration and theft proves to be problematic at times. Especially when you take into account that all designs are essentially influenced by the earlier created works of art we are surrounded by. The Internet alone has millions upon millions of graphic design inspiration at your fingertips. These days, with so many resources so readily available, finding inspiration for a design is pretty easy. The difficult part is taking the idea and making something new of it. How do you do that, you ask; by merging various concepts, approaches and design features together.

When doing a search for graphic design inspiration, don’t stop at one idea. Keep your searches going for additional designs that are related or similar in color, content and structure to what you are looking for. The objective is not to choose one design and duplicate it, instead find a collection of elements that can work together in a different way. As you’re doing your search you should be looking at the design and picking it apart to see if any piece can be meshed with another to create something fresh. Your ultimate goal is to combine the best components of each of these, creating a new design that inspires you.

Once you’ve gathered some inspirational ideas, take a deeper look and study the fine details that really make them stand out and catch your eye. Look for typography, light effects and gradients; these are the subtle details that bring the design to life. You should be asking yourself, “Why do I love this design so much?” Once you have it pinpointed it will be easy for you to create a new vision with different concepts. When you’re finished, it should not look like an imitation of any of the other designs. It should be a renewed design created with the contribution of them all. You must work to fuse the different elements with common stylistic methods to transform your design into something brand new.

There is no guidebook that teaches you how to search for graphic design inspiration and not commit plagiarism, but there are some forthright ways to avoid it. By using the strategies mentioned above we can all help the circulation of new ideas, creating new inspiration for everyone.

Treating Myasthenia Gravis With Orthomolecular Medicine

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Treating and healing Myasthenia Gravis with ordinary amino acids is the basis for Orthomolecular Medicine. Large doses of naturally found proteins called amino acids can repair the imbalance in the brain and repair its malfunction. These amino acids are affordable and are used in therapeutic doses much larger than those levels normally found in food. The concept of orthomolecular medicine is based upon the use of very large doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or botanical extracts for the cellular repair and enhancement of normal brain activities.

Orthomolecular Medicine utilizes 5-HTP, L-phenylalanine, L-tyrosine, and NAC to treat myasthenia gravis. This neurodegenerative disease affects the eyes and is an auto-immune disease. Botanical extracts and supplements are also welcome additions in treating the disease.

Quantum Orthomolecular Medicine may recommend other types of energy medicine to speed the recovery of the patient. Many illnesses are triggered by emotional traumas and stress. Therapies which can reduce major stress or treat the emotional component of illness are very important in healing. Yoga and Qi Gong can help reduce stress issues. They should be done at least four times a week for great results. Another therapy used id Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). It is very good for relieving stress or trauma. It involves taking your finger and tapping on several acupuncture points while stating an affirmation aloud. This may take several sessions to work.

Dietary changes must be quickly implemented. Your diet should include organic or local fruits and vegetables, reduce meats, increase cold water fish like salmon, increase unsaturated fats, eliminate saturated fats, and elimination of refined foods. Try to switch to decaffeinated coffee and eliminate alcohol and nicotine. It is good to have organic meat or free range chickens and organic eggs. Try to avoid all types of genetically modified foods. Implement a three-month period of eating foods that are gluten-free and monitor the results for improvement of energy levels and symptom relief or improvement.

People with myasthenia gravis in their family history may want to take one botanical as a preventative beginning in their late thirties. This may delay or prevent the onset of the disease or lessen the severity of the disease. Schisandra, skullcap, astragulus, ashwaganda, and cordyceps are some of the botanicals that can be used for this disease in Quantum Orthomolecular Medicine. There is a technique that is used in Quantum Orthomolecular Medicine to determine which botanical is needed for the patient and is also used to determine when the botanical is switched to another. Many times the body becomes resistant to a supplement and this must be actively managed. Auto-immune diseases require extra attention in this area.

Performing Arts and Its Branches

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Dance, drama and music that are performed in front of many people or audiences are known to belong in performing arts. This type of art is different from plastic arts which only involve several artworks made from different type of materials like clay, paint, wood and metal. These artworks are often created by many artists and are displayed during exhibits but unlike performing arts, the presence of the artists is not required or is not necessary at all. When it comes to performing arts, the artists themselves together with their performances are the ones that the audiences are interested in. These people are then commonly known as performers.

This type of art is not new to the society because this has been around for so many years now. It actually started centuries ago. This type or art is even more common in schools all over the world and it often involves a number of people who all have the passion to please the crowd by showcasing their talents. By wearing a huge variety of costumes, wigs, masks, foot wears and other accessories, an artist becomes/transforms to a totally different person in front of the crowd and then performs.

As mentioned earlier, there are three branches of performing arts – the dance, drama and music. The first type of performing arts is dance which basically refers the movements of the human body using a particular rhythm. Performing a dance is not only intended to please the crowd but it is also a way to express the performer’s sentiments. It is also a way of showing the people different types of cultures or telling them about the history of a certain place. A dance can be in several forms like folk dance, ballet and many more.

Another branch of performing arts is the drama which is mainly about acting in front of the people. In a drama, the performers act out a particular story in order to entertain their audience. Aside from acting, music, dance, sound, speeches and other elements of performing arts are used for the best performance.

And the last branch of performing arts is music. Music does not only refer to the musical instruments or the sounds that they make, it also involves the people who play the instruments and the voices of the people singing. Music basically started several years ago and from then it became one of the most popular ways to entertain people. Usually, there are four things which make music complete – the pitch, rhythm, dynamic and the timbre.

Each of the branches of performing arts plays a very important role in the entertainment world. All these things make performing arts complete and very interesting. Not only because it is a very good way to entertain people but because this is also a way for other people to see the skills and talents of the performers. It is also a very good way to let the whole world know on what are the things that the performers can do and offer.

How to Buy a Vintage Pachinko Machine

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

So, your game room is nearly complete, but you decide you want a little something extra to add a little flash. You’ve heard about those crazy Japanese pachinko machines, and decided to look at purchasing one to add to the decor. But you don’t really know a lot about them, and don’t want to get taken to the cleaners. This guide will help you avoid the common pitfalls, and help you choose the right pachinko machine for your game room.

A little history of pachinko machines

The first pachinko machines were created in Japan in the late 1920’s, and became very popular very quickly. These early machines were single-shot models, which meant that you had to put a ball into a slot, load it, and then fire it. They paid out small metal tokens or badges as a way of keeping score. In 1934 they shut down all of the parlors and stopped producing pachinko machines altogether. The shortage of both manpower and materials caused by the war effort with China left little for entertainment. After the war, in 1948, they began producing pachinko machines again, and parlors appeared in every neighborhood. Around 1975 millions of pachinko machines were imported to the United States and sold through retail outlets to the public.

Basic categories of pachinko machines

The first thing you need to consider when purchasing a pachinko machine is whether you want an antique, vintage, or modern machine. Antique pachinko machines are generally considered to be made prior to 1962. The back mechanics are mostly metal, and they are almost always single-shot machines. They usually have that “1950’s” style that reflects a certain simplicity and elegance. Vintage pachinko machines are usually 1962 to around 1980, before the digital machines replaced the mechanical ones. These range from models that have 1960-style pop-art themes, to full-blown disco-extravaganzas that combine colors and graphics to produce a piece of art that looks wild by today’s standards. The vintage machines are usually autoloaders, machines that will hold hundreds of balls in a front tray and allow you to fire balls in rapid succession. Modern machines are electronic in nature and have dozens of flashing lights, sound tracks, and video screens.

Which era is right for me?

Antique machines should probably not be purchased with the intent of playing them on a regular basis, but rather as display units to add a unique rare flavor to the decor. Auto loading vintage machines are fun to play, and for some reason children cannot seem to get enough of playing them. If you expect grandchildren to visit your game room, a pachinko machine can keep them occupied and memorized for hours. This is doubly true of the modern pachinko machines with the flashing lights and loud sound effects.

How much does condition matter?

The amount you pay for an antique or vintage pachinko machine has a lot to do with condition. Most of the pachinko machines available are not in the best of shape. The wood is dry-rotted, the chrome is rusted, the playfields are stained, and the plastic is faded and chipped. Sadly, this is a description of the average machine you will find on eBay or Craigslist. Antique machines in this state can still demand a serious price tag, but vintage machines can usually be had for around fifty dollars. You will know immediately from the ad, they will always state that “They don’t know anything about these machines”, or “I don’t know if it works or how to work it”. If you just want a decorative piece that looks interesting as a conversation starter, and are on a limited budget, these machines may be exactly what you are looking for. You may even decide to clean it up and figure out how it works or how to repair it, and find yourself a new hobby in the deal. If you want to step up, there are a number of people who do modest restorations that are basically “tune-ups”. They will disassemble most of the mechanics, clean and polish the chrome and plastic, and shine up the nails. They ensure the machines are functional and ready to play, although the playfield will not be changed, and will usually show some yellowing, fading, and water stains. For common machines the cost will usually be several hundred dollars, and for antique machines you can easily end up paying thousands. These machines are fun for the kids to play, and will look nice in a game room as a nice piece of added flair.

For the perfectionist

Some people don’t just want any old pachinko machine, they want something special. They want a rare 1950’s machine in excellent condition, or a 1970’s autoloader with the playfield restored to the original beauty. They are looking for a work of art. Sadly, there are very few places where someone can locate pachinko machines such as these. You will not find them on eBay, Craigslist, or any of the usual outlets. You have to find one of the few restoration experts, or find someone who deals in the rarest pachinko machines. A few will even do full restorations of a machine that you provide, although you may have to wait a few months for it to be completed. Full restorations can take hundreds of hours. As of this writing, I only know of three people in the United States who regularly do complete restores, and most are usually booked months in advance.

Conclusion

There are many reasons to put a vintage or antique pachinko machine into your game room. Whether you are just looking for a conversation starter, and fun game for the kids, or a rare work of art that will be the envy of your friends, there is a pachinko machine for you. Do a little research, look around, and then find the one that suits you. With millions of them out there, yours is probably quietly waiting for you to find it! You just have to go out and get it!

Understanding the Art of Fortune Telling

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Have your fortune read lately? If so, you are not alone. There are million people around the world who arduously believe in the art of fortune telling since the ancient time. From the beginning of mankind, man has searched for salvation. We try to understand the mystery of the universe. Try to make sense of its all. Fortune telling offers part of the answer, if not all.

Why is fortune telling so popular? Because, it helps us answer the unknown. Believe it or not, mankind has been afraid of the unknown. Whether we want to admit or not, the unknown make everyone feels uncomfortable. For example, if we lose a job, we want to know when we will get a new one. Perhaps, if you are not married, you may want to know when you will find your significant other. If you are sick, would not you want to know how to get better? It is obvious that not all fortune tellers have all the answer. Often enough, fortune tellers will give you a very vague or inaccurate reading. But, even if we do not always get accurate fortune reading, the art of fortune telling still offers great comfort.

In fact, you should not be surprised, if your fortune telling tends to be vague. It is a part of the art. Often enough, fortune tellers state the obvious scientific facts on purpose. For instance, if you work hard, you will be successful. If you are a good person, you will find happiness. Fortune tellers can’t go wrong with these words.

The next time you have your fortune read, remember that it is partially for entertainment. Don’t need to take it so seriously.

The Problem With the Animation Industry

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

The animation world is really struggling as of late. A recent sign of times, A.D Vision who brought you famous titles like: Appleseed, Elfen Lied, and etc. have recently announced their closing the doors. That’s right, due to unfortunate sells in multiple titles they have been forced to close down their doors for good, including other problems, which has lead other companies to pick up multiple titles like mentioned above.

In addition, the economy has shown no grace towards anime specialist as companies like Geneon and Central Park media has closed down their doors for good filing for bankruptcy. What is the main culprit of this distress? It can be attributed towards different aspects like, economic times, DVD sales, and finally failures in marketing approaches. The biggest problem this industry is facing happens to deal directly with copyright infringement. What exactly does this mean? There are multiple sites out there, who are distributing free animation to users over the World Wide Web; however, these sites are failing to pay any royalties to any of the artist. What exactly does this mean? It doesn’t take someone with a PhD in economics to figure out that when there is no demand for a product, there is no need for supply. In this case, their is no need for supply but lots of demand. In truth, the same very loyal fans who love their industry are in fact killing it.

Even the big corporations who are the main supplies of dubbed animation in the United States, like Funimation, are feeling the effects. It’s only a matter of time, at this rate, before animation is entirely gone from the United States. Japanese companies are quickly adapting to times by attempting to sign onto established web agencies. Crunchy roll, one of the only legal streaming online companies who offer animation are, in fact, paying royalties to the artist.

American animation companies need to quickly find new ways to market their product. Times have changed; the old method of selling DVD’s has quickly become outdated. Some recommendations I would wish this industry would incorporate:

1) Official Streaming Sites from each company, followed with a monthly subscription fee.

2) As the saying goes, “there’s gold in them hills.” United States is already eating up the marvel comic book industry; yet, the animation industry has much more in depth and better potential story-lines, which can easily be adapted to the big screen. Isn’t it about time to give titles like Harry Potter, Watchmen, GI Joe, even Lord of the Rings a run for their money?

3) Sales should come from merchandise, not from direct dvd sales. Companies should sign onto such toy industries and take examples of giants in the field: beanie babies, ninja turtles, the list can go on forever.

4) Video Games is a field there are slowly merging with, however, this merger is always in favor of the video game industry. The potential such animation titles can have you ask? Just look at the long video game series, Dragon Ball Z, which was rated by most critics as a horrible fighting game. What carried it? It’s not hard to figure out.

Animation companies need to find different ways to make money off of their product. The main focus should be on offering free broadcast of their titles; the main focus being on simply marketing their product. The best way to accomplish this is by offering a free animation cable channel. Inevitably, the chances of this happening are slim to none. Nevertheless, such fluctuations seen in past spending trends can be matched towards past mass free distributions. Toonami, a popular animation series that ran on Cartoon Network had a very successful launch on the rating scale for simply a few animation titles. Consequently, at the time, no illegal animation streaming sites were available through the World Wide Web, which can be directly attributed towards their success. However, the old ‘anime spending rush’ can be directly linked towards this event, otherwise known as the anime baby boom. In short, animation companies need to stop relying on dvd sales, in fact, this should be considered as their least form of income generation. They need to look at other markets, and learn how to incorporate this into money for them.

In truth, the question really is will the animation industry learn to adapt. The Japanese show signs of life, but the Americans are slowly withering away. There are still some promises out there for possible sparks of life. However, this is quickly sniffed out by some quick announcement of a failed trend. Will this industry ever recover? Only time will tell.

Why People Love Painting

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

People are in love with painting since they came to life millions of years ago. Having fulfilled their essential requirements that they looked up to some recreational activities. Beautiful cave paintings of prehistoric times like those of Lascaux, Le Marche and Chauvet Cave and Bhimbetka bear the testimony of the fact. It may have started from drawing something on the soil with their fingers because a good diagram on the soil helps you become an accomplished artist.

A colorful object joins everyone. Colors give the fancy of the person a new world. When someone holds a paint brush, he thinks that whole cosmos can be drawn through his fingers. Seas, skies, mountains, valleys, gorges, people, animals etc, can all be drawn with immaculate details just on a sheet of paper. Moreover, to color the figure concerned the pigments could be sourced from various things like minerals, vegetables, synthetic materials and other naturally occurring objects.

A cherished memory could well be preserved through a painting. Thus paintings can be made out of imagination as well as of the real thing or the real incident. Painting world is so diverse that a budding artist can choose his style and affiliation to a particular style and then decide to go ahead with. He can specialize in the painting on the basis of medium like water color, oil color, pastel color, fusion etc. Similarly an apprentice can choose to make specifically landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, waterscapes or the fusion of them.

The most interesting part of painting is its commercial aspect. If an artist can carve out for himself a niche, then finance will never be a constraint for him or her. If he works hard in innovation, creativity, consistency and patience, his work can give him everything. Thus, a hobby can be a stabling factor in life. All painting greats had started their journey by just drawing a diagram on surface through their finger. Come and join the league if your fingers are itching to do something.

Pharmaceutical Sales Brag Book – How to Make, What to Include, and How to Present Within Interviews

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Many of you new to the pharmaceutical sales career search process may not have heard of using a brag book or interview portfolio to win the job. A pharmaceutical sales brag book is simply a way to support or prove the claims made in your resume and within the pharma sales interview.

Think of it this way: your interviewer doesn’t know you from Adam…so a brag book essentially validates and corroborates your story within the interview process.

In effect, your pharmaceutical sales brag book is a sales aid – similar to the detail binder that pharmaceutical reps utilize when promoting products to physicians. In the same manner that the detail binder backs-up, supports and adds credibility to a rep’s sales presentation, the brag book adds credibility to your resume and supports your assertions of skills, experience and accomplishments.

In fact, the brag book is considered such an essential part of the pharmaceutical sales interview that if you fail to create one…you’ll very possibly fail the interview. PERIOD!

Now, just as a pharma rep utilizes “features and benefits” to sell a product, you must think in those terms, as well. Your mission is to shamelessly sell your “benefits” (aka achievements) to the hiring manager, and your pharmaceutical sales brag book is the key!

Now, on to your next question…what in the world goes in my Pharmaceutical Sales Brag Book?

Begin with your resume; what achievements/accomplishments are stated? For every achievement listed in your resume, provide tangible evidence in any of the following ways:

  • College transcripts (make sure GPA is a 3.0 or better).
  • Notes from supervisors documenting achievements, or congratulatory letters.
  • Annual (glowing) performance reviews from managers.
  • Detailed sales reports – highlight your sales success in yellow.
  • Photos of awards (plaques) or copies of certificates/awards.
  • Letters of recommendation from previous supervisors or professors.
  • Photos of yourself on college/professional sports teams.
  • Copies of paycheck stubs that prove exceptional commission earnings.
  • Your current or previous business cards, complete with title.
  • Certificates of achievement for courses passed.
  • Thank you emails or commendations from colleagues or clients.
  • Now assemble all the documents, in addition to your resume and reference page (co-workers, supervisor’s names/titles/contact info), and organize in a logical manner. Next, go to your local copy store to have it spiral bound together (wire spiral) with a professional-looking cover. You may also wish to utilize tabs for the different sections, in order to quickly access during the interview.

    How to best use your Pharmaceutical Sales Brag Book to your advantage?

    It’s all in the presentation…

    Your pharmaceutical sales interview portfolio, or brag book, is best utilized in the same manner a pharma rep would present to a physician. In other words, only the most important information (achievements) will be highlighted. Avoid hypnotizing/boring the hiring manager by going over it page by page. ~YAWN! Instead, utilize it in response to an interview question. If the manager asks you about your sales aptitude, provide a great example of your sales aptitude (STAR format) and back it up by pointing to the appropriate, tangible achievement in your brag book. Also, practice using your brag book in response to interview questions. Make sure you know the contents inside and out, so that you may effortlessly find the appropriate section within the interview.

    How To Draw: 5 Tips to Pencil Drawing Skin Tones and Textures

    Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

    What makes skin tones and textures hard to draw is that there are no standard characteristics. Each subject has different textures, colors and nuances. Though every subject is different, I have five tips that will help make your skin tones and textures look more natural, realistic, and effective.

    Grayscale reference photo

    If you have the means to convert your color photo reference into a grayscale, or black and white print, this can be a great advantage. The grayscaled photo can enhance your ability to see the ranges of value you will need to use. These ranges could be the very darkest areas compared to the very lightest, giving you the opportunity to identify the deepest shadows, or in contrast, the apex of a brighter contour or curve. Another advantage of the black and white or grayscale print is, that if you can adjust the value, it helps if you can create an extremely light and/or an extremely dark print. Sometimes with a much lighter print, you can pick up more detail in the very darkest areas. And often, if you can make a much darker print, you can pick up many of the slightest variations in value better in the subtle contours of the face for instance.

    Start with dark

    Something very integral to the 5-Pencil Method, is the order in which you apply the values. You will always want to work from dark to light if you want the best results. Beyond the initial sketch and your refined guidelines, the darkest parts of the face, such as in parts of the eyes and in the face’s outer perimeter will be what receives the first values. You will lay down a light value, using your 4H, to represent those darkest values in your reference photo or subject. This will work very well, because that initial value will only be contrasting with the lighter value of the paper. As you start building the darker values, through layering and using your darker grades of pencils, it will enable you to expand out into the lighter and lighter values of the face with the 4H pencil leading the way, as it continues to create a foundation. As you continue to gradually increase the darkest values by layering and using the darker valued pencils, it will help you maintain your contrast and balance until you are ready for your skin tones. The procedure and the order of your values will continue building in the same way. It will help you as you develop the necessary contrast for the subtle values and gradations, the textures in the skin and face, as well as the contour and dimension.

    Tapered Stroke

    This stroke has a taper at both ends just as the name indicates. This means that the line should be thinner and lighter at the beginning and end of your stroke. This stroke will gradually increase in value at the center, as your pencil makes its maximum contact with the drawing surface. This will allow you to seamlessly extend lines, creating a consistent value, as tapered end overlaps tapered end. The tapered stroke will allow you to create incredible detail, and bring a realistic quality to your rendering through textures, natural shading, shadows, and illusion.

    Dark skin values

    For darker skin tones, you might use more value, but do not use more than you need. You may still need an even darker range of value to demonstrate contour, dimension, and depth, in another area. You wouldn’t want a person’s dark skin to be in the same value range that you would need for a black garment, but what would you do if you had nothing darker to use? They could end up the same. And, if you use a set range of value to illustrate too many areas in your portrait, those areas would start appearing flat in relationship to each other. So, keep your range of values relevant to what needs to be illustrated in your portrait. Apply your values in order of darkest to lightest. Develop the darkest value first in all the relative areas, so that you will be able to maintain their proper relationship with each other and you will always have a sense of where you should stop. This will help you maintain an appropriate contrast with the other values ranges in your rendering. Instead of relying on the shade of a particular skin tone, first rely on the features that will help you designate a particular ethnic look or character trait. Even though the skin may be darker, don’t over do it. Remember, be careful to use only as much value, as you need. Then you will always have a darker value reserved to use. Learn to discern even the slightest shift in value and range. The wider range of values that you are able to create, the more you will be able to capture and express.

    Add depth

    Depth and contour are two of the most important things that you want to accomplish within any area or set of values you are working with. To imply depth-whether it be a contour, or a separate dimension, contrast is always a critical factor. If you can see an uninterrupted range of value go in and out of a recession, it is a contour. Darker values should be used in the deeper shadowed areas to imply depth, and this is where smooth transitions will be a great advantage. Build your gradations by placing the tapered strokes side by side to create a range of value that becomes lighter as it approaches a light source or the apex of a contour or curve. If there is contour that goes around and out of your sight, or disappears behind something, you will need to create a clean edge to your value. This will separate those dimensions and create depth in your drawings. Though we tend to rely on darker values to imply depth, practice developing a contour even within a very limited range of value.

    Have fun drawing!

    Can Your Migraines Disappear With Orthomolecular Medicine?

    Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

    Quantum Brain Healing addresses the root of the migraine problem before recommending the treatment protocol. The root causes of migraine headaches include stress, poor diets, neurotransmitter imbalances, endocrine hormone imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, mineral level imbalances between calcium and magnesium, pineal gland malfunction, electromagnetic field imbalance, and emotional trauma. It is possible for a migraine to be a secondary illness where the primary disease is a brain tumor. Migraine headaches are an important symptom of a brain tumor. A brain aneurysm may feel like a migraine. Migraines may accompany ADHD, epilepsy, diabetes, Crohn’s, heart disease, irritable bowel, depression, and bipolar disease. A comprehensive look at your medical history and diagnostic testing must occur to rule out more serious problems prior to treatment.

    Migraine headaches can be caused by food and environmental allergens. Avoid nitrates, MSG, artificial sweeteners, and foods high in tyramines including red wine, cheeses, and chocolate. Stay away from carbonated beverages, soy, peanuts, pickled foods, non-organic coffee, chocolate, food dyes, food additives, or refined foods. It is very important include protein in your breakfast each day. Avoid all genetically modified foods and eat local or organic fruits and vegetables. Include fresh salmon, avocado, walnuts, almonds, and omega 3 and 6 essential acids in your diet.

    Identify allergens in your diet and avoid them with dietary changes including the G.A.R.D. Diet or the Elimination Diet. The Rotation Diet follows a different theory that allows exposure to each food once each four days. The immune system calms down when there is not frequent exposure to the allergen. Gluten may be a trigger for many people with migraines. Try to keep a food diary for at least one month to identify the foods that may be your triggers.

    Many people with migraines may experience problems with pollution and environmental triggers. These may be avoided or eliminated with hard work. Otherwise, this can be dealt with by reducing stress and improving overall diet and health. Stress may be improved by changing jobs, a divorce from an abusive one, a new job, a new hobby that you enjoy, volunteer work, and watching comedy on TV or at the movies. Stress can be reduced with Yoga, tai chi, and Qi Gong. There are several alternative therapies that can help migraines such as neurobiofeedback, hypnosis, homeopathy, and Bach Flower Remedies.

    Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM) is great at improving migraines with patent herb formulas and liquid herbal extracts which can be used along with auricular laser therapy, auricular acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, and traditional body acupuncture. These therapies usually require two weeks to see improvement. The acupuncturist may recommend several months of treatments depending on how long you have experienced the migraines.
